Not really Pin worthy but dangit ( said it again) I am super proud of our impromptu cinnamon rolls. As you are well aware, I can't bake and my homemaking skills are limited, but I have been on a mission to improve and gain some street cred in the inner baking circuit. Even though these puppies didn't have a perfect shape, they tasted incredible and couldn't have been better. More importantly, we all pitched in.
I always get confused over the myriad of tasks needed when baking. Preheat oven, measure this and that. Let the butter get to room temperature. Does my anxiety in! Then I have my five year old trying to mix things and wanting to help and I get sidetracked or confused or forget how many teaspoons I need to put in. Chaotic. Flour everywhere. Nonetheless, it's fun and the end result is something we are all proud of: a tasty, family made treat. Makes me understand why some of you bake often and rock at it. There is a huge sense of pride knowing one made something and it turned out OK! Even more if it turned out really well. My next baking goal is to make my friend Jen's quick bread ( which we tried when she lived in Phuket) and to get into the gluten free arena, which usually means more measuring and mixing and whatnot. Plus we don't have a ton of options for gluten free flours so I am thinking of going to almond meal route ( any thoughts??)
